  • Battery troubleshooting

    Please note: this text concerns Lithium-Ion batteries only.
     
    HOW TO CHARGE
    If a charger (power supply) comes with your product, use the original charger.
    If you have a device with standard charging socket (such as micro-USB plug that goes into the device, and USB plug that goes into the charger) use chargers with approximately 0.5 to 2.0 Amperes capacity. While you can get chargers with a capacity of 5 A or more, only use them if your device was designed to be charged with this much power. Around 1 A is fortunately close to what you can expect from the majority of computer USB sockets.
    Charging should take place at between 5 and 45 degrees Celsius (41 to 113 F).
    It is wise to charge only where you can observe the device, so you can stop charging if overheating should occur. A smoke alarm is a good idea if you want to charge while sleeping. It is also possible to use a safety bag, sometimes known as a LiPo bag, to increase safety. You simply put your device into the bag, then seal the bag and begin charging.
     
    BATTERY LIFE
    The life expectancy of Li-ion batteries is 500 to 1000 recharging cycles. You can expect full capacity until you have recharged about 500 times. From 500 to 1000 recharging cycles, capacity will decrease gradually, until almost no capacity is left, and the battery will need replacing, if this is possible and economical. Life expectancy is optimal when the battery is being used between 10 and 50 degrees Celsius.
     
    WHAT NOT TO DO
    First, never charge too quickly! This may damage the battery, and may even be dangerous, so do not use high-capacity chargers, unless your device comes with one as standard.
    There is no memory effect in Li-ion batteries, so do not treat them like old Nickel-Cadmium types (which you had to run dry regularly).
    This means that you should never run Li-ion batteries completely dry. Actually, this will damage the battery. Whenever you can, keep them between 20 and 80 per cent capacity, where they perform best. However, it is better to charge the battery to 100% capacity than to run it dry.
    Never charge if temperature is at freezing point or lower (0 degrees Celsius, 32 F), since this will almost certainly damage the battery. Never carry out express charging (charging with high-capacity charger) if temperature is between 0 and 5 degrees and over 45 degrees Celsius, but only use a lower-capacity charger in this temperature interval. Do not place devices in direct sunlight at all, and never charge them in direct sunlight.
    Never place the device that is being charged on a sofa, rug or clothing when charging. This can cause heat to build up, which can in turn cause overheating. Always place it on a flat, hard surface, where heat can dissipate quickly.
     
     
    GENERAL BATTERY INFORMATION
    Most rechargeable devices use Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) polymer batteries these days.
    This type has high energy density, very low memory effect and low self-discharge.
    You can find them in electric cars, golf carts, power tools and other applications, besides portable headphones, telephones and loudspeakers.
    Various subtypes exist that have different strengths and weaknesses, depending on the chemicals and metals used.
    Batteries gradually self-discharge, even if they are not connected to anything. Usually, you can expect a self-discharge of about 2% per month when the battery is new, and this may increase somewhat with battery age and temperature.

  • Tips: How to obtain best performance from Bluetooth devices

    We have some suggestions if you want to enjoy the best performance from your Bluetooth devices. 1. Please note that if you have a large number of Apps open in your smartphone or tablet, this may block or overtax its processor. Dropouts may result. Try to close all or most active apps. This should solve the problem. 2. Bluetooth signals from smartphones and tablets are not very strong. Make sure that the signal does not have to pass through doors, walls etc. Always maintain a clear line of sight between transmitter and receiver. 3. Do not carry your smartphone in your pocket, if you have dropouts. Your body can act as a screen, reducing the strength of the Bluetooth signal. Put the phone on a table or other surface. 4. Do not walk around while listening. If the transmitter and the receiver are moved in relation to each other, dropouts occur more frequently. 5. Under normal circumstances, you can expect a range of 5 meters with no problems, if you follow the above advice. In some instances range is longer, but we cannot promise this.

  • How to avoid Bluetooth Interference or Interruptions

    • Always have clear line of sight between your Bluetooth device (speaker, headphones etc.) and source device (Smartphone/tablet/PC etc). Be aware of obstacles in front of your devices.

    • Try to shutdown other products that have Bluetooth, but are not being used. They are often the reason for interference even though they are not being used.

    • Do not stand too close to your Wi-Fi router since a Wi-Fi signal is stronger and in many cases will "overlap" the connection.

    • Be aware of walls around you. Concrete and brick walls will often interrupt the signal, as it cannot pass through such thick walls.

    • Bluetooth signals cannot travel through water, which includes the human body. Make sure with wireless headphones to keep your source device and the receiver on the same side of your body.

    • Open spaces such as parks can cause issues for your devices, as open air is "bad" for any Bluetooth signal if it cannot reflect from objects around you.

    You should now have a successful pairing with our device, but if you are still experiencing issues then contact us again.

    Pairing issues with a Computer or PC:
    In most cases when a Computer/PC/Laptop has issues connecting to a Bluetooth device (Portable speaker, Headphones, Active speakers), it's caused by your Computer/PC/Laptop's Bluetooth driver (software).
    The driver (software) should support the following Bluetooth protocols, to be able to play music/sounds from your Computer/PC/Laptop:

    • A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) driver for your Computer/PC/Headphones to transfer music.

    • AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) driver to send skip/forward/pause/play music to your device

    Always get the latest driver version available for your Computer/PC/Laptop.

    To download the correct driver (software), visit the manufacturer's website of your Computer/PC/Laptop. They usually have a "Support/Download" section where you can find the correct driver. Otherwise, contact their support.
    The standard drivers provided by Microsoft/Windows systems are often not correct, and will result in error messages (such as having to enter a PIN code), or pairing not working.

    What is Bluetooth technology?
    Bluetooth technology is a wireless technology that exchanges data (Music etc.) over short distances from a mobile device.
    Bluetooth range depends on your surroundings (reflection from objects) and what chipset is being used (some can go 1 meter, 10 meters or 100 meters).
    Our Bluetooth devices typically supports up to 10 meter distance from the source device.

    Explaining the different Bluetooth profiles used in our devices:
    Many of our Bluetooth devices have a specification sheet like Bluetooth Profiles Supported: A2DP v1.5/AVRCP v1.6. These are the protocols that a specific Bluetooth speaker or Headphone device is compatible with. This might look too technical for some customers, but all you need to know is that Bluetooth Speakers and Headphones they are the only ones with these profile that you need to be aware of:

    A2DP – A2DP stands for ‘Advanced Audio Distribution Profile’ and is a Bluetooth protocol that allows mobile users to stream high quality (stereo or mono) audio wirelessly. If you want to listen to your music on a pair of Bluetooth headphones or speakers, both devices need to support this.

    AVRCP – AVRCP stands for ‘Audio/Video Remote Control Profile' and controls remote functions such as pause/start/skip/forward.

    HSP – HSP stands for ‘Headset Profile’ and is a Bluetooth profile to enable a two-way wireless Headphone to be used with a Bluetooth smartphone. In our Headphones this is one of the most common Bluetooth profiles and supports simultaneous two-way (full-duplex) audio, but it does not support stereo audio.

    HFP - HFP Stands for 'Hands Free Profile'. This profile provides the same abilities as HSP does, but adds abilities such as redial last number called, voice dialing and call waiting.

    Note for HSP and HFP:
    You can also use it with devices other than phones, like your Computer/PC with a Bluetooth Headphone that could be used with a Bluetooth-enabled PC and VoIP software to place an Internet phone call (NOTE: some PC software requires different drivers for specific purposes like SKYPE - Always refer to the manufacturer of the PC/Laptop for help with setting this up).
